INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Urinary incontinence (UI) is common in the postpartum period; however, most studies focus on the early postpartum period and assess prevalence at only one or two time points. We hypothesized that UI would be prevalent across the first 2 years postpartum. Our secondary objective was to evaluate risk factors for postpartum UI among a nationally representative, contemporary sample. METHODS: This cross-sectional, population-based study used National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2011-2018) data for parous women within 24 months following delivery...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The use of validated Quality of Life (QoL) questionnaires is useful in the standardization and interpretation process of pelvic floor patient symptoms, due to their functional nature and high prevalence. The Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory QoL questionnaire (PFDI-20) serves both as a symptom inventory and a measure of the degree of bother and distress caused by pelvic floor symptoms. It includes items related to pelvic organ prolapse and lower gastrointestinal and bladder dysfunction...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: During the COVID-19 pandemic, many surgical societies released guidelines that included cancellation of elective cases. The aim of this study was to better understand our patients' perceptions of the severity of their pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) and to determine what factors influenced this perception. We also aimed to better understand who might be amenable to telemedicine visits and what factors influenced this decision. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional quality improvement study that included women at least 18 years of age diagnosed with a pelvic floor disorder being evaluated within a university Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Retropubic midurethral sling surgery involves the blind passage of trocars near vital organs. We quantified the proximity of surgeons' mental representation of trocar position relative to actual position using a pelvis simulation platform. We hypothesized that novice surgeons, compared with experts, would estimate the trocar's location to be further from the actual location. METHODS: Novice and expert surgeons performed bilateral retropubic trocar passes of a Gynecare TVT trocar (#810041B-#810,051) on the simulation platform...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) affects many women and participation in elite sport and high-impact exercise has been reported as a potential risk. However, few studies have investigated the effects of exercising at recreational levels on PFD. Our aim was to investigate levels of PFD in women exercising at, or above, UK guidelines for health and compare them with levels in non-exercisers. METHOD: Data on levels of PFD and potential risk factors (age, hormonal status, body mass index, constipation, parity, forceps delivery, and recreational exercise) were collected using a cross-sectional survey distributed via social media...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC) is a functional reconstructive surgery used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in middle-aged women. Although LSC is widely used, its implementation is hindered by perceived technical difficulties and surgical learning curves. Surgeons require adequate experience with LSC prior to performing the procedure on patients to improve their quality of life. This study is aimed at demonstrating the effectiveness of the ovine model (OM) for training and research in LSC, while also comparing anatomical differences between ovine and human models during the procedure...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) questionnaires provide valid comparisons across disciplines. Pain measures can be used to track functional outcomes. Limited PROMIS pain data exist in gynecological surgery. We sought to use pain intensity and pain interference short forms to assess pain and recovery after pelvic organ prolapse surgery. METHODS: The PROMIS pain intensity and pain interference questionnaires were given to patients undergoing uterosacral ligament suspension (USLS), sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSLF) or minimally invasive sacrocolpopexy (MISC) at baseline, 1 week, and 6 weeks postoperatively...
